Bob Hall Now this one may be in the realm of possibility of being made, one of our station secretary's is an old school hippie and knew I built cars and wanted me to make an old VW Bug from her old Woodstock days. So it's still up in the air though if I could bring myself to build this. LOL !
17. April 2019, 00:04
M M Its actually pretty cool that someone asked you to build it for them. You make great models so I think you should do it. Just paint a few of the flowers Ford Blue and all will be forgiven!! LOL

Bob Hall OK, Just so Chris and Tom know, I did start this kit, and boy howdy is in a bad bad old mold kit. Flash galore and horrific fit, but when done Illl post pics just for you two ! LOL !!!!!!!
2. June, 08:05
Christian W You have my totally respect. I'm a Beetle enthusiast and own a lot of kit of a different producers. I had two of this and sold both. There is *a lot* to do on the body
5. June, 19:19
Bob Hall Only reason I stuck with doing this is because of the old lady that is a good friend, she took one of our kittens recently and is retiring soon, so that's why in fighting my way through this kit ! Ahhhhh !!!!!!!!!!!!

I still smile, when I see this one. The Teddy bear smiles too. I can't imagine why ;) One of the best details are the rims. This small white wall tire on the twotone colored rims looking perfekt to the Beetle. So sweet.

Choppa Nutta O wow, my first car was a 1968 Beetle !!!
If I remember rightly even one of the wings was the colour of yours, or at least close to it :D

Mine was a 1200cc with a 6 volt battery, no fuel gauge and a doorbell for a starter button !!
....... and aged 18 I drove it like I stole it !!

the number of times I had to push start that thing !
and the number I ran out of fuel ..... although one I had just enough momentum to roll up to a fuel pump
haha those were the days, had some good times in that beast !! :D

Last time I saw it was on top of two other cars in the scrap heap ...
..... if only I had known what they would be worth today !!
17. May, 16:44
Dominik Weitzer thanks for that memories :-D
18. May, 10:39
Choppa Nutta Btw, nice build ! :)
18. May, 15:56
Christian W This is a nice stroy behind your experience! Funny too.
My brother and I have a lot of stories too. Slippering with 360 Degrees turns, 90 Degree sliding while passing another car on the other side of the narrow road. To fast through the curves with one Hand then using two Hands to catch the beetle under Control again *lol*.
Loosing a rear Wheel while entering the main road? Falling from a car jack? Jep. Check. Done.

Running out of fuel? Not with a Beetle - I think. With my Pontiac, yes. So many memories.

Thank you!
19. May, 09:48
Choppa Nutta Funny you should mention that Christian as I too lost a wheel going round a corner in the Beetle..
as well as a few sideways moments in the snow skidding to a halt inbetween two posts without hitting either of them etc. leaping over humpback bridges at 70mph and wondering why is the car twisting through the air until some one explained about the odd effect the flywheel has on an airbourne Beetle.
among other stories, happy days !! :)
19. May, 09:59
Johne 69 Well done mate
19. May, 10:42
Dominik Weitzer thanks!
oh, yes, the memories...i remember our orange Big Beetle with non-working starter...always made a pushstart :-D . Or my Jubilee Bug that broke down on the way to work and i was already late anyway, but he rolled very well down the hill nearly the goal :) .
19. May, 13:16
Christian W @choppa nutta ... those stories are so sweet. Thank you for sharing.

@dominik ... right. I forgot about the orange one. That was cool. Still parking at the side at home to roll down the hill for a kick start until we hit the street, which had "rechts vor links"-rule
Now I remember another stroy with my beetle: stopping with blocking front wheels at a pedestrian crossway (or how it's called). I still remember the smiling of the little child at the moment, she looks at the beetle.
Not to forget your convertible. The drama queen. Always a little bitchy on starting. But: theeves weren't able to steal it. That was cool. Loved it. Not the part for getting a new ignition lock. Didn't we knew, that no other lock fit. Only on this 1972 year.
19. May, 19:38
Dominik Weitzer :D yes, my Convertible - Drama Queen :)

But i Always arrived where i wanted to go (only one fault as the Batterie was empty...not far from home…)

5. November 2019, 15:39
Christopher Mullins Well, I seem to not be having a lot of luck with windows in cars, this is the third time I have cracked a window trying to clean it up, mainly because they dont pack them well enough and they get scratched, and then i use to much pressure trying to get it clear again. Being that it is a car from a war though, it is conceivable that the windows would get broken sometimes, so it is so I guess. I just cant figure how to get em to look anyways half way decent again.

30. May 2018, 09:04
Christian W As far as I know aren't they available on the market. There are e.g. the Maglites or Watanabe. But they have not the right shape or are to little. I'm looking for a way to make them. Mine are EMPI 8 spokes. If I had the older Bug with 5 spokes by EMPI, it wouldn't be a problem. 5 spokes are available in some kits by Polarlights.

1. June 2017, 16:22
streetrod60 Thank you @maciej bellos and @klausH. My concern related to this build is the overscale of the metallic paint particle i used. I realized once i finished it, since i use an automotive paint on it
2. June 2017, 08:11
Tim Heimer well I know in the US in the 60"s early 70's they used a fairly large metallic in paint.....that's what I thought of when I saw this.

I remember getting my first pair of long trousers, I was 13 or 14 and I felt so proud and grown up.
They were not fashion busters, but boy did they maketh me a man... Lol ((( :D )))
Children today just don't know what it's like to grow up, they really are missing out!!!
27. September 2014, 17:28
Stefan Suessemilch Now THAT'S what I call a reference pic!! Makes me remember a picture of me in our Opel, the next car after the beetle ;) @ Steve: Ohhh yes it's sooo true, they don't knw what they miss! ... and look at my trousers :D

@Stefan! can you actually see the road ahead, you're using a periscope maybe.
Too early for sat-nav...
Ahh! I know you cut a hole in the glove compartment. ;)
Bet those Trews cut a dash with the girls, lots of games of kiss chase... :D :D :D
27. September 2014, 19:52
Stefan Suessemilch :# I still don't understand why some people thought I'm a girl... well, still better than the trousers nowadays. Those kids today bend forward and you get the idea to put a coin in the.... you know what I mean... and wait for some music starting to play ;)
27. September 2014, 20:26
Stefan Suessemilch By the way... I didn't need to see the road... my brother next to me was a perfect co-rider: "long 6 left, 6 right don't cut into 6 right opens... ;)
27. September 2014, 20:35
Choppa Nutta insert coins not so much, perhaps flowers instead ? :D
trouser fashions these days, I tell them that they look like they have shat them selves or that they are carrying a potatoes in the back of their pants, a little gentle ridicule never hurt anyone :)

Urban Gardini My girlfriends, I see a pattern here. But the best part of it is that she bought it brand new today in a store for only 129 SEK (roughly £11 or €14), there was another on the shelf that was priced at 329 SEK (£28 or €36)...
29. July 2014, 22:28

Phil Marchese Wonder how these are selling in Mexico City?

Urban Gardini They should sell good there one would think! Yes, she's on the slow progress of buildin' Gunze's Beetle at the moment n' is over the moon over this kit.

Marc Schimmler Hi Urban,

cool one.
3. August 2014, 09:14
Steve Wilson ...
Hi Urban, great purchase, glad to see your girlfriend has an eye for a bargain...
Does she know the reason why there was such a hike in price difference??? for the same kit!!!
3. August 2014, 10:12
Urban Gardini We didn't ask! It was probably an error but the pricetag was marked with 24136 on both kits. They're probably marked at the same time as well, some pricetag guns take one stamp before showing the intented amount on the pricetag. I should know with over ten years behind me as a seller. She didn't hesitate at all n' said this is my next kit to build! She's on a slow progress with the Gunze 1956 Beetle now.
3. August 2014, 11:03
Steve Wilson ...
Good job you didn't ask, they might of wanted to charge you more for it,
realizing it was a mistake...
Not because I'm dishonest, but the price on the ticket is what I want to pay!!!
